about

The result of writing and recording over two nights without a lot but mental & physical health concerns for company. Closed out by a BJM cover.

From packed and swirling, to a single guitar and vocal. Everything flows. Not everything is as it seems.

Track Name: Ten Hours
Someone told me I'd smile
Somehow I hid
Someone told them I was past that
A lie that stuck

I'm ten hours away
From where I was before
I'm ten hours wide
Awake and rotten to the core
I'm ten hours late
From where I might have been
I'm ten hours too far

Someone told me I'd smile
Somehow I did
Something told me it was denial
It was right

Someone gave me a drink
Out of sympathy
Someone told them I was past that
A lie that slipped

I'm ten hours away
From where I was before
I'm ten hours wide
Awake and rotten to the core
I'm ten hours late
From where I might have been
I'm ten hours too far
Track Name: Plucked (ft. Piper Moreau)
Been gone / Been gone
Staring so far / Staring so far

Bloodshot blue / Bloodshot blue
Have seen too much / Have seen too much

True to say / True to say
Lives are company / Lives are company

I sign myself to you / To me
Now love blooms / Now love blooms

Locked me down / Locked you down
You're my gravity / I am gravity

All the gods I owned / The gods you owned
Fell at your feet / Fell at my feet

I wait for calls / Wait for calls
You never make / I always make

You're flying over time / Flying every time
Where love blooms / Where love blooms

Dream of water / Dream of water
Streaked with dye / Streaked with dye

Plucked my wings / Plucked your wings
From my sides / From your sides

Let our love / Our love
Set with sin / Set with sin

Set in stone / Set in stone
Love always wins / Love always wins
Track Name: Haha Heroes
Stop talking to yourself
Alright, let's ignore what I've seen

You only listened when you were convinced
I'd be dead from deprivation

Of an audience, of attention
A lack of rent and healthcare

You never paid attention to the songs
But cry about being a fan

Heroes for all
All martyrs on call
Haha Heroes

When you grew up did you know
Your personality was from dead heroes

You celebrate their mythology
That they were condemned by their art

You ignore the negatives
To consume what you were sold

You will never be more
Than a costume spouting lies

Heroes for all
All martyrs on call
Haha Heroes

Don't tell me how to write
Stop dressing like the dead decades

Stop repeating what you read
And be more than a repeat

Your heroes are dead to me
But not as dead as they are to you

Died as artificial intellect
And only past fans give a damn

No heroes for all
Haha Heroes
Track Name: Strung Out In Headspace & Lace
Dying in the wrong arms
Dissociated in the wrong mind
I'd like to love you every time
But who you see is not where I am
Store some tears in your safe
Lock it in with your favourite numbers
Next to the passport photos
Blood was purer when it was borrowed

So to the skin grafts
Covering paw burns
Thanks for hiding
Until you feel the sunshine

So to the veins
The replaced and fixed
I should have lost one arm
To help prop up the statistics

I'm still not dead
I'm still not cured
I'm never looking up
They lose their wings to walk these shoes

Feeling with the wrong arm
The stove owns my fingerprints
You keep the bandages
I'll keep the scent
Blood felt better in the air
They stole it all so I cut right there

Grin, what else can you do
Living is the wrong art
Breathing split me apart
